and no donbt the United States will
? soon flud it advisable to imitate European
mtaiures and to enlist a regular
fore j for the ptrpose of "holding
the Philippines. Foreign possessions
cannot be held by volnnteers " This
is doubtless correct in the uiain. No

gjg)^ them. It is natural mat mey snjum
P^Qt feclauy interest io these islands on
Blether tide of the world, and when
jet away from them, it will
be sMrd matter to get them back
there a) soldiers. A cabinet member
is reported as living thit a call will
not be made ju?t uov i'-*- vJk&st&rz
to g?to the Philippines, and thit in
hia pinion, the inurgents will soon
find it quite a different thing fighting
Americans from 'fighting Spania: ds.
Contrary to this we seem to be following
the late of Spain in the islands.
Gen Lawton says that he could march
with bis brigade from one end of the
Taiand AfT.nyym tr? the other, bat that
he could not hold I be positions captared.
Voluiteeri will become tired
; of boldiug pDiit:oo9 merely to gratify
the greed of the land grabbers. Iu a
year their lerm of enlistment will have
expired, and more volauteers will be
^ required. For the Philippines alone
it w estimated thit 100,000 troop3 will
be need to hold the islands and keep
down rebsllions, even after Aquinaldo
hw been conquered. Where will these
wnlan.'Mrj from? We do not
thiak tbey will be easily obtained, and
in consequents & standing aruiy of
100,000 irill have to be maintained to
hold oar new possessions in ihe far
oast, and Porto Rico will hive to be
cared for. We shall likely fiud as
England has done thit it does not pay
to own territory in the tropics. That
jt. they are a never ending 8oarce. of
triable, and instead of paying the
home government, they are a dead
5^~expfeav#. lj'jrtunately some power i?
left with the people in the United
States, and tiny may have something
to sav about our new foreign policy.
The Columbia State under the head
of "Give Us,a Rest," asks the News
and Courier not to publish 'Suggestions"
for ^office jast now. The people
of the State, excluding all of the
politicians of course, will join in the
protest, agaiust starting a political
campaign now. This is an off year.
Tt ! a? been a Ion? time since we have
bad a real off year in politics, and the
people ought to be allowed to make
this a real off year and enj >y it. They
have more profitable things to think
about than politics. It is all right to
discuss the important federal questions,
for they seem tar off, aud we can talk
about tbem without gettiog mad. Bnt
by ail means, let's have a rest on State
politics, and especially State candidates.
The newspapers can do a great deai
towards giving the State a rest. They
should not encourage the prematare
announcement Of candidates, and
should try to interest the people iu
soaaethiBg else. We have plenty of
-* ! - A ~ _ iu.

Goremor's office and other desirable
place*. They can tbe found cn very
_ ^ Short notice, and it will be an easy
matter for the candidates to find
friend* to suggest them in 1900. In
the meantime, the people are interested
in the wonderful revival of railroad
building and the growth of manufac
J j - t -l! at
caring mauscrzes, auu auuve au tucv
are interested in the solution of the
problem of 4-cent cotton. Newspapers
will always find interested
readers on these subjects. There is
another view of the matter. Newspapers
too often give politicians free
advertisement. Why should one, who
is hardly known ootside of his immediate
neighborhood, be given a
column or so in a newspaper circulating
his views with'the real object of
announcing hi^ candidacy for office.
If newspapers would charge "for such
things just as they do regular advertisers
fewer interviews "with prominent
politicians" would appear, and we
would be spared a surfeit of politic3.
Yea, give us a rest.

Interesting Tbinfcs About This Live Little
" City
Last night I witnessed for the first
time a North Carolina election. People
from a distance arc prone to laugh
and belittle the elections ef Sonth
\_iai uima ? us ,
methods and the- suppressed vote of
the negro. This election here was a
Democratic primary?participate*!! in
only by whites?and it was a disgrace
to Anglo-Saxons. I didu't see the
sense in their cry of white supremacy.
Men were voted, bought and sold, and
many a man couldn't swear for whoru
he voted, because his tickets were
taken from him and changed six er
e^ght times in as many feet. In the
fi> st ward the sccne at the poles ret
minded me very much of Tillmnn's
campaign in 1890. The second pri
mary comes off*next Friday, and #ne
, is a whiskey candidate, the other
i somewhat ?on the drj side, and one
can imagine what a "monkey and
parrott time' there wM bo.
The Mecklinburg Historical Sx-iery

is to compile all matter pertaining to

hc*rd of Lincoln's* assaesination. In
front of ihe new court house- is a
granite shaft erected to the memory
of the signers of the Mecklinbnrg
Declaration of Independence.
The court honse here is an ornament
to the city and a credit to the people.
It is a l-irse braiding near the centre
of the city, and presents an attractive
appearand. Inside it is up to date in
every re;pect. The furniture is abont
thedbest that could be bought. The
clerk's office has a large vault adj ?ining
in which all books, paper, &c , are
kept, and are always safe. Agiin, the
house i.< kept clean. In the lobby,
posted in conspicuous-, place*, are
signs warning everyone that there !
will be a fine of five dollars for. spitting
on the floor. The Seats in ihe
courtroom are opeva cbairs, contrasting
with the usual straight back bench
Speaking of the courthouse, I tbink
they administer justice much better
here than in South Carolina. It is
harder for a white rnau to escape here
than there. Again there are not so
many delava; and new trials are raie

was caught hiding in a wardrobe of

and ends the long reproach that our
poet could not be read by those to
whom he *ubg save iu acme thiu and
shabby booklet, rarely found, of a
generation ago. This Memorial edition
is complete and well-arranjjeo. It
contains poems never bt&re collected,
and embraces all the known product*
of Tim rod's inspiration. There is
fine engraving of the poet, reproduced
from the oil portrait ownel by the
Hon. W. A.. Conrtenay,and a memoir,
written with true insight and graceful
skill, which we assume to be fr< m ti.e
same friend's hand.
The book is most creditable to ibe
associatior whose demotion has brought
it forth. It gives to the English- '
speaking peoples of both hemisphere!
Ine opportunity to know a South Carolina
poet whose verses rival the best
in our language. It meets tbe desire
of many of our own people, Jhitherto
unattained, to possess a fitting record
of poems conceived in tbeir spirit,
born of their hopes and sorrows and
instinct with tbe beauty of their land.
But beyond this it has a mission which
